Sorry I didn't realize it was a change as opposed to a typo.  How
about calling it var to keep legacy naming within /P/App/1.0

It'll have to wait until I'm back home.  The gobo install I'm
currently using is strictly non-devel.

Ok.  I'll concede sharing is more important than a less clutter
program level Variable.

How about this:

PrepareProgram -t 
    make /P/App/1.0/var symlink to Resources/Defaults/Variable (keep
Variable name or rename?)

PrepareProgram -T
    make /P/App/1.0/var symlink to /S/Variable

    copy Resources/Defaults/Variable to /S/Variable with sensible
conflict handling.

Is that it??
